The Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo, has urged Ghanaians to continue supporting President Akufo-Addo and the governing NPP to implement laudable policies for the benefit of present and future generations.
He says NPP is the best thing that ever happened to Ghana and that Ghanaians stand to lose should the party exit power after the December 7 general elections.
It is as a result of this that he has also urged the people to disregard the vile propaganda against the ruling party by NDC and massively vote for President Akufo-Addo and all NPP parliamentary candidates during the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Takoradi during his recent visit to the oil city to cut the sod for the commencement of rehabilitation and expansion works on Sekondi-Takoradi water supply system, Mr Osafo-Maafo reiterated that the December 7 election is about the track records of the two major political parties in Ghana.
He said the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, and the incumbent President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo have both had the opportunity of ruling Ghana. The Senior Minister therefore urged the citizenry to compare and use their works as a yardstick for assessing them.
Fortunately, the Senior Minister said, NPP’s works such as Free SHS, 1D1F, One Ambulance, One Constituency, NABCO, Planting for Food and Jobs, One Village, One Dam are there for everybody to see and not in a ‘green book’.
He said NPP believes in peaceful elections and would leave no stone unturned in making the December 7 elections violence-free.
According to the Senior Minister, all security personnel and agencies in the country have been charged by the government to ensure that nobody indulges in acts of violence or confusion on the election day.
He said it would also not be out of place if the traditional authorities caution those who intend causing mayhem on the election day to rescind their decision in order not to clash with security personnel.
Mr Osafo-Maafo reminded the people of full preparedness on the part of government to protect the security, peace and tranquility of the country.
He also reminded Ghanaians on the need to continue to adhere to the Covid-19 safety protocols since the pandemic is yet not over.
